Verse of the Day, April 18, 2020
1 Peter 5:8-9 CSB "Be sober-minded, be alert. Your adversary the devil is prowling around like a roaring lion, looking for anyone he can devour.  Resist him, firm in the faith, knowing that the same kind of sufferings are being experienced by your fellow believers throughout the world."
Lord, help us pray for one another. As we think of our troubles and temptations, make us aware of our brothers and sisters, who are suffering from common circumstances. May we pray for each other, so that our requests are multiplied for our good, and your glory. Peter reminds us that everyone praying for each other accomplishes more good than me selfishly praying for myself. Today when I pray for my defense and needs, bring to my mind a friend, who is suffering the same obstacles so I can include them in my request. In Jesus’ name, amen.
